Spring Philanthropy Week 2019 | March 18 - 22

Alumni Engagement will host Philanthropy Week the week of March 18-22, 2019. We want students to realize how much philanthropy positively affects the CSS experience, and how important it is for each of us to give back. Through philanthropic giving of time, talent, and treasure, we can all help CSS, and our communities, thrive. 

Monday, Mar. 18: COMMUNITY

Welcome to Philanthropy Week! Did you know that CSS alumni have made our Benedictine community possible? Without their generous contributions of time, talent, and money, we would not exist! Look for the 100 Grand Bars and chocolate coins we have scattered around campus; the wrappers contain fun facts about alumni donations.

Tuesday, Mar. 19: LOVE OF LEARNING

Giving rocks, get it?! As you learn more about philanthropy, SAA invites you to the Student Union from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. to decorate a rock with a word, phrase, or message that speaks to the importance of giving. Keep the rock for yourself or plant it somewhere along campus for someone else to discover.

Don't forget to stop by and get your Philanthropy Week passport stamped. Each passport stamp will earn you one entry into a drawing for an awesome gift card prize at the end of the week!

Wednesday, Mar. 20: RESPECT

A picture is worth a thousand words. A genuine thank you is invaluable. Today, we encourage you to stop by our photo booth from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Student Union. We will provide props and white boards for you to write your note of appreciation. Plus earn another stamp on your Philanthropy Week passport!

Thursday, Mar. 21: STEWARDSHIP (Give to CSS Day)

Be a good steward and thank a donor. We have the cards – you just need to sign them! Look for us in the Union today from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We are also collecting donations for the CSS food shelf. Everyone who participates will earn a stamp on their passport and another chance to win a gift card prize.

Friday, Mar. 22: HOSPITALITY

Grab a cupcake (it’s our way of saying “thanks) in the Benedictine Commons from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until they run out!
